UACCB receives honorable mention in ‘Cancel COVID on College Campuses’ video contest

Posted Date - 12/14/20
The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville student ambassadors won $1,000 in the “Cancel COVID on College Campuses” video contest. The Arkansas Department of Health through its Office of Health Equity and its Be Well Arkansas program created the contest to challenge students across the state to produce compelling videos that would promote ways to stop the spread of COVID-19 in higher education settings. 

Each team was asked to submit a short, fact-based YouTube video that used entertainment, emotion, creativity and/or humor to motivate other students to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines. In addition to the grand prize of $5,000, one runner-up received $2,500 and the 10 honorable mentions each received $1,000.

The video was produced by UACCB’s fall 2020 semester ambassadors, Jessica Cardenas, Brianna Bass, Briar Bumpous, Noah Weaver, and Colby Hoggard. The video, titled “Bob’s COVID Adventures,” features UACCB’s mascot Bob the Bandit making mistakes regarding CDC guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and students on campus instructing him on proper prevention guidelines.

“Our ambassadors all worked really hard on this video. They were able to work with students, faculty, and staff on our campus and have a great time doing it,” said C’aira Stewart, admissions administrative assistant and supervisor of the student ambassadors. “A big shout out to everyone who participated, edited, or was just supportive during the project! I’m grateful for the opportunity that this challenge presented for the ambassadors, as well as projecting a message that reflects the proper guidelines for COVID.”

Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday that he will not renew the statewide mask mandate that expires at midnight tonight; however, school districts, private businesses, and medical facilities may still require patrons to wear masks as a preventative measure against the spread of COVID-19 under the revised guidelines. The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville will maintain mask use and social distancing protocols on campus through the end of the spring semester. During its meeting on Friday, March 19, 2021, the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee discussed the topic of continuing the mask mandate on campus after the statewide mandate expires March 31. Campus constituents, including representatives from the faculty senate, staff senate, Student Government Association and the cabinet were involved in the discussion. It was agreed that continuing to follow mask use and social distancing protocols was in the best interest of the campus community.

 

On Friday, March 26, 2021, the campus reported its fifth straight week of having zero positive self-reported cases of COVID-19 associated with the campus. Our students, faculty, and staff have shown outstanding diligence in wearing face coverings and social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The campus community is asked to continue in its diligence to keep members of campus safe and healthy, not only for the benefit of campus but our community as well.
